See details: I try not to use an NSAID such as Mobic (meloxicam) in individuals with high cardiac risk. Individuals with hypertension, hyperlipidemia and diabetes are considered high risk.

Could the mobic (meloxicam) i'm taking for my arthritis be causing stomach pain?

Yes: Mobic (meloxicam) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug. These drugs can potentially cause gastritis, esophageal reflux disease [heartburn or gerd], and bleeding ulcers. It is important to take these with food and water, and contact your physician if you start to develope stomach pain.

Does norvasc, Diovan (valsartan) and/or allopurinol cause urinary problems?

No: No, they are perfectly safe drugs in a normal individual with hypertension and gout. However the renal function needs to be monitored every 3-6 months in someone who takes Diovan (valsartan) or allopurinol.
A 37-year-old member asked:

Why do you take betapace, xocor, digoxin, and Coumadin (warfarin) with atrial fibrillation and sinus tachycardia?

Dr. Claude Brachfeld
Cardiology 39 years experience
Prevent stroke: Actually atrial fibrillation and sinus tachycardia are two completely different heart rhythms. None of these drugs would be of any use for sinus tachycardia. In atrial fibrillation, Betapace may restore a normal rhythm. Digoxin can help keep the heart rate down. Coumadin (warfarin) reduces the risk of stroke. Zocor also reduces stroke risk in some patients, but this is unrelated to the atrial fib.

A 22-year-old male asked:

I have fibromyalgia and currently on melatonin, meloxicam, and zoloft (sertraline). Am I ok to take valerian root for sleep and stress?

Dr. Theresa-Ann Clark

Probably: Valerian root works on the same brain receptors are valium but is much weaker. The other medications you mention do not crossreact with it. Caution, melatonin can cause abnormal menstrual cycles. I suggest you consult with a reputable naturopathic physician who prescibes appropriate diet, herbs, and supplements. Be careful. The fda regulates these as food and content labeling may be inaccurate.
